    22 KB Farming it Quest. farmer fa/tg/uy 02/22/12(Wed)13:05 No.18056305  
    To recap:

    You are Bill, son of John. You've lived much of your life in the same square mile or so working the land. That was until you killed a messenger and made a pact with a spirit of the wood. You're now on your way to a town where a festival is being held, pulled along by a pair of Kyliah cattle. in your possession your handy axe, as well as a large green crystal taken from the belly of a feral spirit of the woods.

    It is sunny and warm today. You've rode many a mile and as you reach the edge of the woods in the distance you can see what appears to be smoke rising from chimneys. You can see a sea of tents rising from the outskirts and the sounds of merry voices fill the air.

    With a flick of the reigns you make your way towards town. As you reach the outskirts you are hailed to stop by several men wearing armor.

    "You here for the festival?" One man asks, strapped to his back is what appears to be a Flamberge style sword. His men eye you wearily even as several children run by screaming happily as they play.

    Turning away he barks an order to one of the men nearby. A younger lad with dark hair, he runs off towards the gatehouse and returns a few moments later with a wooden object that looks a bit like walking stick. On one end is a rounded knob carved into the likeness of a face.

    "Just hold still for a second, and we'll send you right in."

    "nothing for you too...." he stops talking as the staff begins to make a snuffling sound. It's haft moving in a snakelike manner as it passes near you. The head rearing to look you in the eyes. Dead wooden sockets stare into your own and for a brief moment the lips begin to move a wooden rasp coming from them.

    As quickly as it came to life it returns to death becoming a mere staff once more.

    You can't for the life of you remember exactly what it was that you were supposed to do. Even as you trundle into the tent city the smells of food further distract. Rich meats cooking over open fires and freshly baked pies filled with an assortment of food assault your senses.

    And then it hits you. The spice. It had to do with the spice. The death of a man to ensure the harvest, a rich man... and it's gone as you spot a wine sink, hunger and thirst winning out.

    As you settle down to a nice pint of nut brown it floods back into your mind. Your goal is now clear(through the power of ale). Even as you sip the heady beverage you can feel the spirits crawling through the streets, hard to spot even to your attuned senses. They seem to be recluses but, they are there.

    We should go out and search for particularly strong spirit. Maybe like the fae from our farm? Walk around, explore, feel the spirits.
    Also, keep on the lookout for the greenman and the Order

    you leave few coins on the board that served as a bar and let your senses guide you. you smell the scent of fresh fish and blood. the sound of water against rocks and the gurgling scream of drowning men. Slowly you make your way through the town coming down to the water front. It's calm tranquil surface lapping lazily against your ankles as you look out at the broad expanse. There is still power in it though, a slow steady fury that waits till it's time is right to make a move.

    "You look a wee bit lost laddy." A old voice crows from nearby. "Might be yer wanting to take a dip in the ol' turtle's water?"

    The old man smiles, You realize he must be quite up there in his years. His skin like worn leather,and a toothless foolish look about him.

    "Well I happen to be a simple fisherman is all." He gestures to an empty bucket and bottle of wine. "Though I'm sadly lacking in fish currently. Tell me son, where are you from?"

    As your hands reach into the water you begin to feel as if something is reaching back. As easily as you may pick a turnip you are pulled under dragged towards the murky bottom. even as your lungs scream you go deeper still until you black out. When you come to you find yourself in what appears to be a cold wet cave.

    The turtle is the symbol of the river he explains and should invest a bit of its power into you by once more eating its heart.

    As for the ceremony it's a binding rite enacted by greenmen to ensure that the land will do as they say and bend to their will more easily. In essence enslaving all the local spirits into one big army for them.

    You charge down the streets. The sounds growing louder even as the bucket sloshes dangerously and the turtle tries to bite at your fingers. As you reach the main square of town you have to fight through the mass of people come to spectate. In the center of it stand several men and a single elf. They move in a disturbing dance around him seeming to draw spirits from around the town towards him. Creating a swirling morass of once free will.

    their tattooed bodies seem to writhe with power as each step is fought to be gentle instead of furious. As you shove through the crowd axe in hand it hits you like wave slowing your motions even as the turtle manages to escape landing with a clattering sound on the cobbles. The drums continue to pound the air their bass tones rumbling in the base of your hear.

    You slide into the stony shoreline releasing the man from your jaws at a perfect arc to send him flying through the air, landing with a loud splash. For a brief moment it looks like he survived until something large and pulls him under.

    The human greenmen prepare to assault, the elf hanging back. Even as they do you can see spirits wrapped around their bodies, twisted malicious creatures harnessed to their wills and turned to their own ends.

    You throw yourself out of the way as the ground where you had been standing erupts in a hail of dirt and stone. Even at you do the greenmen are rounding for another attack. Charging forward you manage to get within a few feet of the nearest before you feel a fist hammer you in the sternum as a rather stout one leap to meet you. The force sends you skidding back several feet and knocks you into the water. And, something clicks. The water's moving around you embracing you like a lover would ready to come to your aid.

    Try to draw more power from the lake. Plead to the river-spirit to give you boost.

    Let your anger boil, think of all those things that made you furious, like that messenger who trampled your crops or that snotty greenman who tried to kill you. Guide those emotions into a beam of hatred!

    Ah, these words should make us properly angry. This little fucker telling that WE are the usurper, that WE are the fouls ones. We PAID for this power, we went through the proper routes to appease the spirits while this barbarian violently grabbed it and he DARES to call us out.

    Let the water-spirits know of his evil-doings, channel our rage into them and lets take out the asshole together.

    The lake spirit has been for lack of a better word. knocked out. It's fury stilled by some outside force. Even as you offer blood you can feel the lesser spirits crawling around your body threatening to take more of you than you'd like. It's power though. And power is always handy. Eels, crabs and lesser turtles as well some minor fish spirits have begun to circle you waiting for an answer.

    The elf wave his hand and you're met in turn by something that feels utterly wrong curling THINGS and hands wrap around you. Stopping you dead in your tracks as a scrabbling sound fills your ears.

    "You changelings are all the same. Intent on whatever commands you're given. It makes you So Easy to handle."

    A gout of water lashes out spraying him in the face. Breaking his concentration for a brief second. You manage to gain a little ground even as he reasserts his control over the spirits.

    "Filthy mongrel. I'll show you how it's done." Lifting his hand to his face his bites into the flesh of his palm, drawing pale pinkish blood from it and letting it drip on the ground. "Unlike you pathetic creatures. I know how to make a proper deal."

    As the blood pools something begins to change about the man. His features seem to become..wrong. Shiny wet black eyes stare at you as sharp needle like teeth fill his mouth. Long fingers become sheathed in a hard red material.

    A few seconds later it begins to twitch and flop its way down the shore. out of breath you fall to your knees staring at the flopping, twitching mess that was the green man from the order of the Emerald Rose.

    Laying on the ground is a small onyx figure in the shape of a turtle and beside it. A green glass rose.

    sadly rep doesn't work. Spirits are greedy greedy bastards they'll always want some sort of payment. weather it's blood deeds or sacrfice. if you see someone with a magic sword they gave up something pretty big. it's against a spirits nature to take on such a shape and to hold it for any length of time is 'stressful' for them.

    Most likely it is universal, not to say that there aren't exceptions of how things are done, we're seeing that with the greenmen and Johns styles even.
